RESPONSES/COMMENTS (NON-CLINICAL)


RE: Chiropractic Stem Cell Clinics


From: David Weiss, DPM


 


There have been several chiropractors in my area that have opened “stem cell clinics” for treating neuropathy and fibromyalgia. These clinics have nurse practitioners administering the injections and some even do “IV Stem Cell” therapy. I had a patient come in today that I have been treating for a plantar plate tear. She paid $14,000 (yes THOUSAND) for a “stem cell treatment” for fibromyalgia. She was given 4 injections in her foot and 2 in her back.


 


I use the placental tissues in my practice (as injections for plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonosis, etc.) and they are quite helpful. These have well-documented, double-blind studies. Has anyone else in the country seen these clinics open up? Are you seeing patients undergo this type of treatment? My patient is still in pain, and is frustrated. I’m surprised that the Boards of Medicine tolerate this.
